Maharashtra political crisis: 4 more MLAs join Eknath Shinde-led rebel camp in Guwahati

While Manjula Gavit and Chandrakant Patil are Independent MLAs, Yogesh Kadam and Gulabrao Patil are Shiv Sena legislators.

As Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray's exit from his official residence grabbed the headlines, 4 MLAs from the state quietly joined ranks with rebel leader Eknath Shinde.

The four MLAs, Chandrakant Patil, Yogesh Kadam, Manjula Gavit and Gulabrao Patil, arrived in Guwahati on a chartered plane.

While Manjula Gavit and Chandrakant Patil are Independent MLAs, Yogesh Kadam and Gulabrao Patil are Shiv Sena legislators.

Gulabrao Patil is the water supply and sanitation minister in the Uddhav Thackeray-led Maharashtra government. He is the second cabinet minister to have joined Shinde after Horticulture Minister Sandipal Bhumre.

A group of rebel Maharashtra MLAs, led by Shinde, was flown to Guwahati on Wednesday morning.

They were taken to Surat from Mumbai on Tuesday and in the early hours of Wednesday, they were shifted to Guwahati.
